/ Going leashless and home made efforts!
If you want to get one on the cheap I can sell you an old Grivel one for £9 posted.
Use old climbing rope with the core removed and insert shock cord inside! If feeling flush buy tubular tape and do the same. Knot and use dog leash clips to attach ;-)
For pinky-rest, the best I've seen is to use a Black Diamond ice clipper (plastic biner for racking ice screws, remove the gate and the upper curve, and then use two hose claps to clamp it to the shaft. Wrap the hose clamps in plastic.
Here are a couple other ones:
or you can make a true Frankentool:
I made some of these a few years back - think it was cored 6mm with bungy cord threaded through, tied off at the ends onto mini krabs. Worked a real treat but since then I have moved to some very dinky units.
I now have 2 of the extending springy coils that come on the end of the nutkey and linked into the end of the quarks with mini krabs. they come together on a spinner to connect to my harness. Incrediby compact and work very well.
